Summaries
Main Description
Paul Hiebert's critical biography of the wholly mythical but irrepressible and irresistible Sarah Binks, "the Sweet Songstress of Saskatchewan," who gave her life to poetry and died a martyr to the muse, is a hilarious analysis of her career and influences, along with a memorable selection of the poet's tenderest, most inspiring writings. This masterpiece of satire won the 1947 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour.
